Harper's Magazine

By 29th Street Publishing

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Experience the digital version of Harper’s Magazine, the oldest continuously published general-interest monthly in America. Harper’s explores the issues that drive our national conversation, through long-form narrative journalism and essays, and such celebrated features as the Harper’s Index.

With its emphasis on fine writing and original thought, Harper’s provides readers with a unique perspective on politics, society, the environment, and culture. Many of the essays, fiction, and reporting in the magazine are written by promising new voices, while our archive includes some of the most distinguished names in American letters, among them Annie Dillard, Barbara Ehrenreich, Jonathan Franzen, Mary Gaitskill, and David Foster Wallace. Harper’s also features award-winning photography and illustration from the likes of Lena Herzog, Samuel James, and Steve Mumford.

Issues on the Harper’s Magazine app include all stories and art from the print edition of the magazine. Each digital edition is designed to provide a straightforward and elegant reading experience on your tablet or smartphone.

Subscriptions are $39.99 for twelve issues, delivered monthly, and your subscription gives you Web access to our entire archive—more than 160 years of Harper’s.

When you become a subscriber, you can download any issue published while your subscription is active. If your subscription lapses, you will still be able to read the issues published while you were an active subscriber.

To read issues published before your subscription began, you must pay for them individually at $6.99 per issue. Tap the “Restore” button to make previously purchased issues available on your iPhone, iPod or iPad. You can update or cancel your subscription in your iTunes Store account settings.

Cannot download issues

Cannot download issues on my iPad. It says downloading but nothing happens.

I just downloaded the newest version and I still cannot access the issues. It still says downloading but nothing happens.

Cannot download an issue

Any issue. Each time I've tried, the download stops when it's nearly finished. I've sent a support e-mail to Harper's but it remains unanswered. This is an incredibly poor experience. Please fix this.

Can't download issues -- ripoff!

I paid for a one-year subscription eight months ago but can't download any issues. Repeated emails to support unanswered. That's $21.99 down the tubes and I can't get a refund. Not cool, Harper's. What a ripoff.
